I'm from Missouri

This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me." This site is dedicated to skepticism of official dogma in all subjects. Just-so stories are not accepted here. This is a site where controversial subjects such as evolution theory and the Holocaust may be freely debated.

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Simple yes or no question: Did Hitler ever actually say this?

I don't know, and it doesn't matter.

You don't know, Larry? Well you either made up the quote, or you actually quoted it from one of Hitler's speeches or writings, or from someone else quoting him. Either way, you must know whether it's genuine or not.

So you genuinely think it 'doesn't matter' if you basically make up words in Hitler's mouth, and present it as an actual quote?

I made up the quote, but I don't know if Hitler actually said it or not, or if he said something similar. And I didn't present it as an actual quote.

Anyway, too much of the Darwin-to-Hitler debate focuses on whether or not Hitler was personally directly influenced by evolution theory. But we know, for example, that the Nazis were influenced by American eugenics programs, which were in turn influenced by evolution theory.
